Two wonderful books about New York city
Goodfriend, Joyce D. "Before the Melting Pot: Society and Culture in Colonial New York City, 1664-1730". Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1992.
Jill Lepore's "New York Burning" (about a slave rebellion) is outstanding ... not quite about Henry Hudson etc -- but about colonial New York and about the Dutch under the English.
